If you are like me you’ve heard the stories of someone adopting a child and then it not working and the parent disrupting the adoption. Honestly before I entered the adoption world this made me sick. I thought the parents were awful and heartless. I mean who would adopt a child and then change their mind. How bad could it be? Seriously.
Now that I’m an adoptive momma and have met many friends who’ve adopted my tune has changed when I hear these stories. Now my heart aches for the family who no doubt made one of the, if not the, hardest decisions they’ll ever have to make. No parent ever wants to even think about this thought.
My friend Christine wrote a beautiful post today on this subject. I highly encourage you to go and read it. It will stretch your mind and hopefully next time you hear of this awful tragedy happening to a child and a family your thoughts will be a little bit more compassionate and loving.
